The Board of the Mastic Asphalt Council (MAC) would like to sincerely thank MAC member companies who have very kindly donated large supplies of materials for use by Mastic Asphalt Apprentices carrying out their apprenticeship at New City College Hackney.

Materials such as mastic asphalt, sheathing felt, primers, sand, cement and accessories have been provided free of charge by Shield Membranes, IKO, Alltype, Skyline Roofing Centres and Covered Roofing Supplies for use by the apprentices at the college during their course. Chris Maloney, Managing Director of Covered Roofing Supplies, kindly organised and arranged the whole delivery of materials.

MAC Director Malcolm Grinstead said: “This is a fantastic gesture by several of our member companies and many thanks to Chris Maloney for organising the delivery of materials. Not only are the MAC Board of Directors very appreciative of the donation of the materials, the apprentices themselves are too, as is Mastic Asphalt Lecturer Alf Tufano of New City College Hackney. It will help the apprentices develop their skills even further in the application of mastic asphalt.”
